Copyright Act 1987 and Copyright (Amendment) Act 1987

This act protects the intellectual property rights of individuals on their copyrightable products. It consists of the work eligible for copyright, the scope of protection and the manner in which the protections are applied. The Amended Act in 1997 took into account the growing importance of intellectual property and information technology. It updated the law on copyright, and included the provision that unauthorized transmission of copyright works over the Internet is an infringement of copyright.
